I'm back, and I have another silly idea.
It has recently come to my attention that Ninja Gaiden Trilogy
, much like Super Mario All-Stars
, uses a butt-ton of code from the original NES games. Despite this, there are certain things which are missing from this compilation/upgrade: namely, all three ending credit rolls.
What I propose is a ROM hack which restores these endings. The credits and music are already in the game.
They've just had their coding gutted. As KungFuFirby found out (and, demonstrated
), all it takes is some clever copying-and-pasting of ROM data, but I genuinely have no idea how one would go about doing that.
On a related note, I'd also love it if someone could restore the lightning flashes and dark terrain of Ninja Gaiden II
Act 3-1, which was sloppily disabled
, for no discernible reason. This would probably be easier than fixing the endings, since it's (probably) a smaller chunk of code.
Just some random ideas to make a less-than-stellar port slightly better. Cheers!
